Ride Day Frequently Asked Questions

About Cystic Fibrosis:
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited chronic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. More than 10 million people) are "carriers" of the defective CF gene. CF causes repeat and chronic lung infections and difficulty digesting food and nutrients. The average life expectancy is 37 years of age—there is no cure.

This is a historic time in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Recently, the CF Foundation has developed a new drug- Kalydeco- that targets the basic genetic defect causing CF. The passing of this new drug by the FDA opens many doors for future research and creates new hope for all afflicted. Now, more than ever before, we must continue to raise funds in support of a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life®. Bike helmets are required to ride.
